    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    A marvelous ensemble cast and all the visceral impact and moment-to-moment tension of a fine thriller, together with the distinctive visual style of an art film.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    A movie for hardcore film geeks and regular folk alike, a stunning, and stunningly improbable, fusion of postmodern pastiche and old-school Hollywood melodrama. It's both a marvelous technical accomplishment and a tragic love story that sweeps you off your feet.

    Ten
    The ultimate lesson in less-is-more cinema, an intimate and revelatory character study as well as a brilliant, almost symphonic rendering of the distracted, anxious, half-alienated and half-meditative state in which we spend vast amounts of our lives.

    Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman and Julianne Moore bring dignity and Oscar-worthy performances to The Hours, a lovingly crafted meditation on death, loss and literature.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    An extraordinary and original creation. It belongs alongside "Amores Perros" and "Memento" on a shortlist of 2001's most exciting revelations.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    A work of loopy, original comic genius.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    One of the most extraordinary accomplishments in recent American nonfiction filmmaking. It hits hard as to facts, and opens its eyes to inexpressible mysteries. It strikes a clear moral and philosophical stance, and then -- as part of that philosophical stance, actually -- reveals its villain as a tragic and sympathetic figure.

    This movie's an absolute knockout. I know it's only June, but I'm damned if this isn't the breakthrough American film of the year.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    A bona fide summer delight loaded with action, humor, nostalgia, a veritable blizzard of pop-culture references and general good vibes.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's a distinctive, ominous and hypnotic work of cinema.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    A terrifying, absorbing 93 minutes spent in hell. It captures the intensity of warfare in a visceral fashion that recalls Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" and Oliver Stone's "Platoon."
    • 67 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    A fascinating, mature, beautifully crafted work of art, from a director who continues to surprise us. Sofia Coppola has absorbed the Italian avant-garde more completely than her father ever did, and has made a film about celebrity in the vein of Antonioni and Bertolucci, a film about Hollywood in which she turns her back on it, possibly forever.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    It might well be the most important film you see this year, and the most important documentary of this young century.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    One of the best movies of the year.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's a tremendously absorbing blend of history, journalism and drama. As soon as it was over, I wanted to watch it again.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    A movie so rousing, so real and so full of complicated emotions that it all feels brand-new.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    A pitch-perfect blend of darkness and sweetness, built around a masterful performance by a great actor.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    Visually spectacular, with wide-screen cinematography from Nobuyasu Kita, impressive, full-scale sets and special effects and exhausting, immersive action scenes, 13 Assassins is pretty nearly the samurai classic it sets out to become.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    The most exciting action flick of the year, by a huge margin.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    What he (Beauvois) conveys, through austere but spectacular visual language, magnificent liturgical singing and an ensemble cast headed by the terrific French veteran actors Lambert Wilson and Michael Lonsdale, is something of the "why."
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's a handsome and stimulating film, noteworthy more for its terrific acting and provocative ideas than for any kind of dark Cronenbergundian genius.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    Instead of sticking with the familiar, Scorsese has followed his impulses into something that feels entirely new but is still distinctively his. He has made a potential holiday classic, an exciting, comic and sentimental melodrama that will satisfy children and adults alike and reward repeat viewings for many years to come.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    A ravishing, emotional and often very funny film about a wedding gone wrong, the end of the world and a woman suffering from profound depression.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    Fiennes' crackerjack Coriolanus stays true to the clever, almost mean-spirited twists and turns of the story, and preserves the authentic flavor and texture of the language.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    Jane Eyre is a passionate, impossible love story, one of the most romantic ever told. But it's also a cold, wild story about destruction, madness and loss, and this movie captures its divided spirit like none before.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    In this quiet, beautiful and terrifying fable about a group of lost pioneers, Reichardt combines epic ambition with a focus on intimate, personal detail.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    My first thought was: It's a temple, a church, a cathedral -- maybe the first one ever built -- and the better-known ones in Rome and Jerusalem and Istanbul are just later versions of the same thing.

    If The Dark Knight Rises is a fascist film, it's a great fascist film, and arguably the biggest, darkest, most thrilling and disturbing and utterly balls-out spectacle ever created for the screen. It's an unfriendly masterpiece that shows you only a little circle of daylight, way up there at the top of our collective prison shaft - but a masterpiece nonetheless.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    Rapturous and hilarious.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's a brilliant work of cinema, a nonfiction film as intense and visceral as any drama, and an emotional and moral experience that feels horrifying and exhilarating at almost the same moment.
